(IID to hold two Public Hearings)…Both will be held next week.
The Imperial Irrigation District says the Public Hearings will deal with a proposed plan to mitigate wildfire dangers in the utility’s service area. Under Senate Bill 901, the District is charged with obtaining public comments on a plan that addresses wildfire risks related to electrical infrastructure to establish programs and procedures to reduce risk, prepare for wildfire events and develop program oversight. The new law was adopted following the fires of 2018 that devastated several areas of California. Both Public Hearings will begin at 4:30 pm. The first one will be held Tuesday in Condit Auditorium in El Centro. The second Public Hearing will be held Thursday in the IID Boardroom in La Quinta.
